Arbuthnot Commercial Asset Based Lending Limited (Arbuthnot Commercial ABL) is an established specialist asset based lender, focused on delivering facilities to SMEs and lower mid‐market corporates.

We provide full Asset Based Lending (ABL) facilities (invoice discounting, stock finance, property and plant and machinery loans) plus cash flow loans in support of acquisition, refinancing, cash-out and turnaround scenarios.

The combination of a highly experienced ABL team, together with the strength, stability and heritage of a private bank founded in 1833 sets us apart.

Clients benefit from our short reporting lines and the direct involvement of our senior management team. We take the time to understand each client’s individual objectives and aspirations. Then we deliver creative deal structures to tight timeframes, to generate the optimal level of headroom with the speed and certainty that event-driven transactions demand.

We pride ourselves on building long-term relationships with our clients and their advisors, supporting their objectives throughout the business and economic cycle.
